Mumbai: Satisfied to snatch a thrilling draw in the third Test against India on Saturday, West Indies skipper Darren Sammy said a defeat in the final match of the series would have broken their hearts, especially after scoring massive runs in the first innings.
Chasing 243 runs in 64 overs in the second innings to complete a rare series whitewash against the West Indies, India could manage 242 for nine, thereby ensuring a nerve-wracking finish.
"I had all sorts of feelings coming into my mind. At one time, the feeling of a tied Test too came to my mind. I was speaking to Kirk (Edwards) at covers and he said 'we can draw, we won't lose'. To lose the game after scoring 590 would have been heart breaking for us," a visibly content Sammy said at the post-match press conference.
